Hi Mike, I was wondering if you could please explain to me what an Agnostic is? I have a girl who I work with who claims to be Agnostic and I want to be able to talk with her. She is very bold with what she believes. Thanks!

Technically, an agnostic is someone who claims ignorance when it comes to God. In other words, agnostics would say that God might exist, but God also might not exist. They just don't know. There are levels and nuances to agnosticism, however. Some just plead ignorance and go on about their business. Some, however, are skeptics who love to try to convince believers of their errors. In other words, those "agnostics" would argue that no one can know about God, and that if anyone claims to know about God, they are simply misled. Of course, that is not technically agnostic, since the word means without knowledge. Therefore, people who claim to be agnostics, but at the same time claim to know certain things about God are not really agnostics at all.
